Auburn Public Library
The Auburn Public Library had experienced tremendous success in hiring strong leaders and in successfully completing a transformational capital campaign. But their board was shrinking, not engaged in fundraising, and lacked succession planning. And their existing group of corporators was largely ineffective. They hired Marc to conduct a board audit and make recommendations for changing both the board and the corporators. 18 months after acting on the recommendations in Marc’s audit, both groups are entirely transformed.

Blackbaud’s Conference for Nonprofits
